Metacognition and Self-regulated Learning

The Programme

Metacognition and Self-regulated learning is the most accessed strand of the EEF’s Teaching and Learning Toolkit, with an average impact of an additional seven months progress. This programme will support practitioners to see how this can be applied effectively in their schools and classrooms to impact positively upon outcomes for pupils.

Based upon the EEF guidance report and the most up to the moment evidence, this three day training programme will enable you to make confident decisions about how to implement strategies to improve pupils’ metacognitive skills to support them in becoming self-regulated learners.

Audience            :  The programme is suitable for headteachers, senior leaders, heads of department or key stages, middle leaders and classroom teachers from primary, secondary and special schools. All delegates must attend all three days.

Day 1:  25 February 2020 Day 2:  24 March 2020 Day 3:  9 June 2020 

Investigating the evidence base for great teaching:

Will explore in detail what metacognition is (and is not), unpicking common misconceptions and developing an in depth knowledge of the metacognitive process.

Translating evidence to have high impact in the classroom:

Will consider the links between memory and metacognition and how to explicitly teach metacognitive skills.

Sustain high-impact practice through evidence-based CPD:

Will focus upon how we can teach children to be independent learners who can manage their own learning effectively. The day will also explore the evidence around effective implementation, and how delegates can implement their learning from the programme back in school
